REGIMENTAL STRUCTURE

Camp Life CapDuring the 1770's, a typical British Infantry Regiment consisted of the Field and Staff Officers and 10 companies, composed of three different types of soldiers: eight Battalion or "Hat" Companies, one Company of Grenadiers, and one Company of Light Infantry. Each of these companies had a specific role in the regiment and were manned as follows:



Parade MacaroniField and Staff Officers;
Lieutenant Colonel (the Officer Commanding), Chaplain, Adjutant, Surgeon and Sugeon's Mate

Battalion Companies; (eight companies, 46 Officers and men each)
Captain, 2 Lieutenants, 2 Serjeants, 3 Corporals, 1 Drummer, 38 Private Soldiers.

Grenadier Company; (48 Officers and men)
Captain, 2 Lieutenants, 2 Serjeants, 3 Corporals, 1 Drummer, 2 Fifers, 38 Private Soldiers.

Light Infantry Company; (46 Officers and men)
Captain, 2 Lieutenants, 2 Serjeants, 3 Corporals, 1 Drummer, 38 Private Soldiers.

Thus, a Regiment at "full-strength" consisted of approximately 467 Officers, NCOs and Private Soldiers.

Currently, the Recreated 10th Foot consists of two companies of soldiers -- a Company of Grenadiers and a Company of Light Infantry -- as these were the companies that took part in the march to Concord on April 19th, 1775. The Regiment also boasts a Company of Music and Corps of Civilian Volunteers. Follow the links below to find out more about the role each played in an 18th Century British Regiment.

In addition, as the Tenth Regiment is an IRS recognized 501(c)3 public charity incorporated under the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, we are guided by a Board of Directors, which consists of members both from within and outside of the Regiment.
